A monthly contest from the editors of RECORD asks you to guess the architect for a building of historical importance.
The obelisk dedicated to George Washington on the mall of the nation's capital is 555 feet tall, the highest freestanding stone structure in the world. It was designed in 1848 but not completed for 40 years—long after the death of its architect, famous for a number of government buildings, churches, and other institutions in this country.
